Making miracles: Vail Veterans Program is ‘what was missing after Vietnam’
McDougal was a paraplegic last July. He has followed his own best advice, “Physician, heal thyself,” and was improving but was still in a wheelchair in early November.
Yet here he is two months later, one of 85 guests of the Vail Veterans Program’s January group, standing at the top of Golden Peak … standing … on skis … in Vail.
McDougal believes in miracles, because he is one. On Monday, Jan. 22, he grinned like the medical miracle he is, pushed off and followed the laws of gravity with missionary zeal.
Onlookers at the bottom cheered. His wife cried. Truth be told, if there were dry eyes on Golden Peak, then they were lying eyes.
